Mark this on your calendar, folks. July 24th, 2019 is the roll out date for the top shelf Kindle model. That said, you can preorder the device now on Amazon.

There are a few changes to this device and it comes with an awesome bonus, too, so don’t forget to read until the end!

Kindle Oasis Changes

The look gets an upgrade to a flush-front screen like the all-new Kindle Paperwhite. It also now comes with an adjustable warm light that you can tune from white to amber.

Yep, folks, that’s it.

What Stays the Same

The Kindle Oasis is still the largest Kindle at 7″. It still Audible compatible with a Bluetooth device. Waterproofing is definitely still there. You still get the choice of Graphite or Champagne Gold for the device colors.

Page-turn buttons? Check! Its display is still 300 ppi and it still comes with 25 (!!) LED front lights.

As for storage, it still comes in the 8G or 32G options.

You can choose With or Without Special Offers. And you can still choose Cellular Connectivity + WiFi or just WiFi alone.

Limited Time Bonus

For a limited time, you can get 6 months of Kindle Unlimited FREE when you purchase a new Kindle Oasis. That’s $60 you safe. Half a year of unlimited reading.

Just remember to cancel before the trial period is over, or you’ll be charged the normal $9.99/month price.

Should You Upgrade? Elizabeth Horton-Newton Quote

If having a larger screen is important to you, then definitely. If having the best device available is important to you, then absolutely!

However, you can get the previous generation Kindle Oasis for $50 off right now, too.

If money is an issue though, maybe choose one of the other Kindle models I list.

I’ll be keeping my eye on this one as the release date nears, so stay tuned!

  1. I think the kindle oasis is a great concept, but really it’s been just like most of the other devices. Changing backlight color is pretty good, but with it having the same dimensions, not a huge reason to upgrade. Maybe if looking for the change in color on the light. But others it’s still a cool device.


    1. I agree with you.  I’m a fan of the Paperwhite myself.  Unless you need a bigger screen, I don’t see the appeal of the Oasis.  It literally is the same except the lighting now changed a smidge.

  2. I love those ereaders! I bought one for my mother-in-law who loves to read and she fell in love with it too. I didn’t know that amazon keeps updating them though. I guess that makes sense because there’s updates with everything else! I might get this sometime, because I love big screens.

    1. Oh, they definitely keep making newer and newer models, just like with smartphones!  You may want to check out the current Kindles available before deciding on the big screen Oasis.  Though, it’s definitely an awesome device!

      Thanks for visiting!

  3. I like Kindle, but in Europe it’s a bit of a pain to order one if you don’t live in the UK. I also am a bit more of a fan of readers with a more open format like the nook or the Kobo over here. Having said that if I lived in the US I might have gone for kindle because of the sheer quality of them.
    Anyway, well written piece, keep up the good work!

    1. Thank you!

      Also thanks for telling me that it’s harder to get a Kindle outside of the UK in Europe! I wasn’t aware of that as most of them are available on the various Amazon sites.

  4. I have always been curious about the E-readers but I have never tried one.  I was wondering, how they are different reading a book that you download on your computer or tablet?  What do you feel is the best app to use for audio books? This is a beautiful article by the way, very well written and very informative.

    1. Thanks so much!

      E-readers are different than reading on your computer or tablet because of the screen for one.  The screen isn’t as harsh on the eyes.  It’s almost like reading paper, actually.  Which is why it’s called an eInk screen.  No glare either if you’re interested in reading outside.

      The biggest thing though is e-readers are only dedicated to reading, so there aren’t notifications or other distractions like with your phone or tablet.  Much better for someone who is just looking to relax and read.

      I have a post about these benefits if you’re interested!

    Dear Selenity,

    I love your article on e-readers. I had given one to my mom in January this year. After going through your review one thought came into my mind that I should have waited for some more time. But then I understand technology is always upgrading.

    Features I liked in Oasis over our model are it is waterproof, paper turn buttons & color choice. Although I am not techno-savvy, so do not know what is cellular connectivity, but it must be a great feature.

    After my mother, my daughter is a very big fan of reading. I will definitely plan to purchase Kindle Oasis in the near future. I have bookmarked your site for future use. Please keep us updated on this.

    Thanks for updating,


    1. Hi!!

      Cellular connectivity is basically cell phone service.  This is an optional addition to some of the Kindles that allow you to have access to your books on the storage cloud even without WiFi at no monthly charge.  The devices with this capability are more expensive, but if you don’t have reliable WiFi available, it might be worth it.

      Thanks for visiting!
